I have just seen on the DGL website that Danil “Dendi” Ishutin is no longer coming out to rAge.
was amazed to see how quite everybody is on the matter.
outrage, no despair – nothing!
me wonder if anybody out there even reads the Do Gaming page any
more importantly, it shows how unfairly a very small group of gamers
treat the MSSA.
2005, as the MSSA claims, they have sent a team every year overseas
except for 2008 when the MSSA brought the mighty SK Gaming DotA and
CounterStrike teams to South Africa. See
for Loda's romantic adventure with a giraffe.
'community' was up in arms over the MSSA's decision as many gamers
(very short-sightedly) felt that the money should be spent on prize
money rather than bringing the SK heavy-weights to South Africa.
feel the MSSA did the right thing.
in mind that the MSSA is a private association that is sponsored by
companies, and does not generate profits of its own from trading, you
can only realise how difficult it must be for the MSSA.
the MSSA has never once reneged on a promise to either send a team
overseas, or to bring a team here.
still, a very small cadre of discontents complain.
what the Dendi affair does tell me is that it is not so easy to bring
players here or to send them over there.
fact that the MSSA consistently does it on a shoe-string budget tells
me that the MSSA has the will, the drive and the commitment.
